These three concertos are ably played by Michele Boegner. The most attractive of the three is No.11 in D major, which has a Hungarian feel to it. The other two concertos are a little lightweight in comparison, but benefit from repeated hearings. It is a recording that lovers of Haydn's music should enjoy. The accompanying notes state "the listener is flabbergasted to encounter so much music in so few notes" ~ which is a way of saying "not a note is wasted". Recommended.

It is unimaginable that one could get exhausted with the 27 piano concertos of Mozart but, in that unlikely eventuality, then these three contertos will easily sate any appetite for Mozartian piano music. Had Mozart's life not been cruelly cut short then he would udoubtedly have matched the brilliance of Haydn's 104 symphonies so, given Mozart's short life, it's quite something that I can say these Haydn piano concertos do not reach the genius of Mozart's - especially the later ones. True, that may be because piano concertos were not a priority for Haydn but, whatever, it has to be said that the three concertos presented here are very much at the level of Mozart's middle period piano concertos-think numbers 14,15 and 16...and even middle level Mozart piano concertos would warrant five stars, especially when performed by the piano concerto experts, the English Chamber Orchestra, here ably supporting Michele Boegner under Jose-luis Garcia. They perform with an elegance, spirit and empathy that gives sparkle to these three Haydn gems.
